  • Step 1
    Preheat oven to 230°C/210°C fan-forced. Melt butter in a frying pan over medium-high heat. Add onion, garlic and bacon. Cook, stirring, for 3 to 4 minutes or until onion has softened. Transfer mixture to a bowl. Cool slightly. Add sage, breadcrumbs and egg. Mix to combine.

Press onion mixture over cut side of loin. Roll up to enclose. Tie with kitchen string at 3cm intervals. Rub skin with oil, then salt. Place in a roasting pan.

    Roast for 20 minutes or until skin starts to turn golden. Reduce oven to 180°C/160°C fan-forced. Roast for 2 hours 15 minutes or until pork is golden, and juices run clear when pierced with a skewer. Add apples for last 15 minutes. Cover ends of pork with foil if over-browning. Remove pork from oven. Cover loosely with foil. Stand for 10 minutes. Slice. Serve with apple.

Roast pork with prosciutto, sage & pistachio nuts

Ingredients

  • 2 1.5kg boned pork loins
  • 250g thin slices prosciutto
  • 20 fresh sage leaves
  • 110g (2/3 cup) shelled pistachio nuts, roughly chopped
  • 2 tablespoons salt
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 6 (about 250g each) beurre bosc pears, unpeeled, halved, stems left intact

Method

  • Step 1
    Place pork loins, rind-side up, on a clean surface. Use a sharp knife to score rind crossways, to fat layer, at 2cm intervals. Pat dry with paper towel.
  • Step 2
    Turn pork over and position so the thicker end is on your left. Cut a horizontal slit from the centre towards edge in the thicker end (don’t cut all way through). Open top of slit so pork sits flat. Place half the prosciutto down centre of each pork loin, leaving a 3cm border at ends. Top with sage, pistachio nuts and remaining prosciutto. Beginning at the thicker ends, roll pork up and tie with un-waxed white string at regular intervals to secure.
  • Step 3
    Preheat oven to 230°C. Position oven racks so tops of pork loins are at middle height in oven.
  • Step 4
    Rub 1 tablespoon of salt and 1 tablespoon of lemon juice thoroughly into the cuts on each pork loin rind. Place in a large roasting pan. Roast in preheated oven for 20 minutes or until skin crackles. Reduce temperature to 180°C. Place pears around the pork in a single layer. Cook for a further 1 hour or until pork is golden, crackled and just cooked through.

Method

  • Step 1
    Preheat oven to 220°C. Place pork flat, skin-side up, on a chopping board. Using a sharp knife, score skin widthways at 1cm intervals, cutting deeply almost into fat layer. Turn pork over. Holding knife horizontally, make a 5cm-deep cut under eye of meat, just above fat, to create a cavity for stuffing.
  • Step 2
    For stuffing, cut thick stalks from rocket and chop finely. Coarsely chop leaves and reserve separately. Heat oil in a frying pan over low-medium heat, add rocket stalks, onion, garlic, thyme and lemon rind and cook, stirring, for 5 minutes or until soft. Add pine nuts and cook for a further 5 minutes. Stir in rocket leaves and cook for 1 minute or until just wilted. Transfer mixture to a bowl. Stir in breadcrumbs then season to taste with salt and pepper. Leave to cool, then stir in egg and feta.
  • Step 3
    Season pork to taste. Pack stuffing into prepared cavity. Roll pork up to enclose stuffing and tie meat at 2cm intervals with cooking string to secure. Place in a large, heavy-based roasting pan. Combine fennel seeds, allspice and oil in a small bowl. Season to taste then rub over pork. Roast for 30 minutes, then reduce temperature to 190°C and roast for a further 30 minutes.
  • Step 4
    Cut peaches in half and remove stones. Place peaches in pan around pork then drizzle with maple syrup. Return to oven and roast for a further 15 minutes or until pork is cooked through. Remove pork from pan. Wrap loosely in foil and set aside to rest for 15 minutes. Depending on the ripeness of the peaches, it may be necessary to return them to the oven for a further 5-10 minutes or until tender. Remove peaches from pan and cover to keep warm.
  • Step 5
    Place roasting pan on to stovetop over medium heat. Add wine and stir to remove cooked pieces from base of pan then boil until reduced by 1/2. Add stock and boil until reduced by 1/2. Strain the gravy through a fine sieve into a jug. Serve pork in slices with peaches and gravy.
